Join us in welcoming J.C. Cole shoes to TheShoeMart! We have been selling fine quality J.C. Cole belts and beautiful, durable J.C. Cole shoehorns at TheShoeMart for years.  We expect no less from J.C. Cole shoes. Read on to learn more about their excellent quality below.

 

Construction

Genuine GoodYear Welt Construction

J.C. Cole shoes are Goodyear Welted.  The sturdiest available 360º leather storm welts are stitched to both the upper pattern and insole rib of the shoe. This is the strongest construction method known for shoes that provides all day comfort, support, and wear.

J.C. Cole Michail Last

Years in the making, the Michail Last is an exclusive lastmaker design created for our J.C. Cole shoes.  After many wear testings and tweakings, we believe that this last has acquired the most comprehensive fitting qualities required for the active foot. Shoes on this last run True To Size, so we recommend that you order your typical dress shoe size.

Patterns

Each upper pattern has undergone the highest scrutiny for quality and balance. J.C. Cole shoes are hand rubbed and burnished, and each pair has been matched for consistency in appearance and wear.  The distinctive handsewn Northern Cross bar tacking adds strength at points of stress.

 

JC Cole Dundee

JC Cole DundeeThe J.C. Cole Dundee is J.C. Cole’s version of a bench-made dress blucher. It’s plain-toe design makes it extremely versatile. The Dundee was inspired by the timeless English-Scottish brogues of both the Northampton, England and Galway, Scotland regions.

 

 

 

JC Cole Galway

JC Cole Galway

 

The J.C. Cole Galway is a longwing dress blucher. Like the Dundee, the Galway is inspired by classic English-Scottish brogues.  Special dies create both the meticulous pinking (saw toothed edges) and the crisp, clean diameters of the perfing (graduated pattern holes).

 

 

Components

6T_3201

Uppers

Premium select Italian calfskin leather. Hand-finished.

Linings

Smooth American cow leather lines the full shoe.

Insoles

Flexible, full-grain, veg-tanned, American leather insoles. These offer the highest consistency for “moulding” – when natural heat and moisture from the wearer’s foot imprints an individual foundation within the insoles.

7S_3203

Midsoles

Precision milled leather midsoles are attached to the outsole to ensure a consistent, solid base.

Steel Shank

A hardened steel shank is placed with the footbed, encased in a layer of natural cork.  This helps to provide consistent foot support, temperature regularion, and underfoot cushion.

Outsoles

Double oak bend leather outsoles are repairable and offer exceptional durability and stability. Great for city wear.

Heels

A repairable three-piece dovetail heel, commonly referred to as a McAfee heel, consists of stacked leather and a rubber insert for longer wear.

 

 

J.C. Cole shoes are sold exclusively in the USA at TheShoeMart and TheShoeMart.com.

Minnetonka Double Deerskin Moccasins

DoubleDeer

Minnetonka Moccasin has been creating super-comfortable slip-ons since they were founded in 1946.  What began as a small, regional moccasin company has evolved into a brand synonymous with comfort and classic American style. The Men’s Minnetonka Moccasin Double Deerskin Softsole Moc is no exception. Read on to learn a little more about this style.

DSC_9150_sq

This best-selling men’s moccasin is handmade with natural deerskin and wraps your foot in buttery softness.  Natural deerskin is known for its rugged durability and it’s ultra-soft feel.  It is also highly breathable, making it great for warm weather wear. Deerskin footwear is very forgiving, as it readily conforms to the shape of your feet.

Double deerskin means double the comfort and quality for a better-than-barefoot feeling. A padded insole just adds to the comfort of these soft moccasins.

How To Care for Deerskin Moccasins:

Clean and Protect with a delicate leather cream. Minnetonka recommends their Suede & Leather Cleaner.  Always test leather care products on an inconspicuous part of your shoes to be sure it gives the results you desire. Some leather products will darken leather.

Remove Stains by gently spot treating with water and a gentle cleaner, such as baby shampoo.  Rub very gently in a circular motion with a damp cloth.  If the stain is greasy, skip the water and try using a little baby powder to draw the grease out instead. Avoid rubbing the baby powder into the leather, instead use a soft brush to remove the excess.

Always Air Dry your shoes.  Stick white tissue paper inside to help maintain the form of your moccasins as they dry.  Putting shoes in direct sunlight or next to a heating source may fade or crack the leather, reducing the life of your shoes.
